Here's another possible clue. When I uncomment the line: 'Option "AutoRepeat" "250 30"' in my XF86Config-4 file and restart X the change does not appear in xset -q -- the reported autorepeat settings remain at the default 660 25. Other options in the keyboard section are definitely read, as I can foul up the key mapping with little effort. Also I note that if I switch back to the VT where I ran startx I see a console message from X: '(II) Keyboard "Mac ADB Keyboard" handled by legacy driver'. Is this to be expected?
Here's my current keyboard section. Anybody see anything obviously wrong?
Identifier "Mac ADB Keyboard"
# Option "XkbDisable"
# Option "Protocol" "Standard"
Option "AutoRepeat" "250 30"
Option "XkbTypes" "default"
Option "XkbCompat" "default"
Option "XkbGeometry" "macintosh"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
# Option "XkbModel" "xfree86"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "macintosh_old"
# Option "XkbKeymap" "macintosh_old"
Some of these options I have enabled because I found them in other people's 68k Mac config files posted to this mail list that supposedly worked. For instance, I have no idea what XkbTypes or XkbCompat are supposed to do.
